AR Glasses, Google indicates what might be their next project

Augmented Reality (AR) has been in the scene since the late 1980’s and 90’s. From Terminator to Robocop, people were given a glimpse into what the next few years might be holding for the tech generation. Over the years we’ve seen the AR glasses in many different movies, the latest one was “Iron Man”. Well you can’t expect the average person to randomly go and buy an Iron man suit but they can certainly get the “AR Glasses”.

For those of you who don’t know what they are, they look just like a normal pair of glasses but they come with enhanced technology involving reality with digital overlays. Over the years, these AR glasses have transitioned from being overpriced and chunky to being affordable and impressively functional.

So how does it work? Well it can be used as an interface that is made in such a way that would assist you in many ways. For example:

• You’re putting up some curtains for your house, the glasses would select the color of the curtains with special algorithms.

• It can generate objects for you to show you which thing would look great in a particular spot.

• It has a built-in microphone as well so that it can connect with Siri and Alexa for voice based searches.

• It also has a GPS feature which would never let you lose your way back home.

Since Facebook has become “Meta”, it is trending and people think that this Metaverse could be the next “Best” thing. With Facebook making great progress, how could Google stay behind? Well google has revealed that they are going to try and make a mark in the world with a product that some people would say is a 2010 Classic.

Google released a version of “Glass” for developers back in 2013, but they were never released for commercial use. We think because Google thought that they didn’t have the proper technology to make it big. But now they seem to be making efforts into bringing the project back to life.

The New York Times in its recent report said that Google bought the maker of smart glass “North” in mid of 2020. At that time, the company did not have a proper vision as to what they wanted to do with North, but now it seems like they have found the successor of Glass.

Google has shown that they are here to stay, with no intentions of being left behind the wheel. With North joining them and the metaverse trend picking up pace quickly, the company is all set to make the next generation of AR glasses with better features and they might be aiming to bring the price factor down as well.
